White Dress, Red Lip, Bright Blooms? We’ve Got It All!

I have this thing for white barns and this shoot right here is fulfilling every one of those fantasies. Add in the bright florals and a delicious looking jalapeno blood orange margarita and we’re good to go. Birds Of A Feather and The Southern Table created this magic, with help from Bella Acento and Sugar Bee Sweets and we’ll be forever in their debt after going through Jess Barfield’s pics over and over and over again – all in our Vault here!

From The Southern TableThis vibrant and colorful inspiration shoot was brought together to showcase this gorgeous white space venue, The White Sparrow. With the artful eye of Wendy Kay of Birds of a Feather Events, this collective of vendors perfectly showcased this dreamy space while focusing the design on vibrant colors and romantic details.

Say “I Do” at The Greenhouse at Driftwood

Texas Hill Country is made for marrying, I don’t need to tell you that.  And when it comes to choosing a locale in this pretty little Lone Star State paradise, look no further than The Greenhouse at Driftwood, a breathtaking venue that is equal parts elegant AND unique. Think lush foliage, natural open spaces and a true attention to conservation and sustainability.  We’re honestly obsessed.

Tucked amidst the Onion and Jackson Creeks just miles from the Austin city limits, The Greenhouse at Driftwood is unlike any other venue you will ever have the privilege to visit with amazing structures and surroundings all cared for by THREE generations of the same family.  Yep, from the century-old Oaks to their beautiful greenhouse to their breathtaking deck, The Greenhouse at Driftwood is giving Hill Country weddings a whole new meaning.  Not to mention that The Greenhouse has been collecting rainwater for primary water use since the 1970’s, uses rooftop solar panels for most of their power needs AND proudly supports Hill Country Conservancy and the Travis Audubon Society. We love that.

Can’t wait to say “I do” amongst the native plants and awe-inspiring scenery of The Greenhouse at Driftwood?  Contact them TODAY to start planning the wedding you’ve always wanted.  It’s going to be awesome, lovelies.

Let’s just say it’s rustic chic done SO right. Fall brides, head to The Vault for more steal-worthy ideas – cheese + cider bar included.

From The Bride… You get married and you’re both over the moon with happiness. Then comes numerous questions about the big day. “Congratulations! You looked beautiful! Did everything go as planned?”, they say to me. All I can say is it was all that plus more. A true fairytale. The kind you see in romantic movies where everything goes perfectly. I truly felt like a princess the entire day. Usually, you would think nerves come with the big day, and normally they do. For everyone. I had such a great team putting our wedding together that I do not remember being nervous. Surrounded by my friends and family, it was all excitement.

I wanted a very open feel to the wedding. So naturally, being outside for the ceremony and reception was what I was going for. We were obsessed with our venue, The Grove, in Aubrey, TX. From the beginning, I told our wedding planner, Wendy Kay, that flowers and greenery were very important to me. Little touches of flowers and color were everywhere you looked. Pinks, magenta, and deep burgundy stood out all over The Grove. From floating flowers on the tables at the reception to elegant floral crowns for my bridesmaids. Even the tiny details on the grooms and groomsmen boutonnières were incredible. The Southern Table stayed within our budget yet completely surprised me and Scotty on how amazing it all looked!

Another thing that I really wanted to incorporate into the night specifically, was lighting. Especially since it was outside. We had lights installed in the trees, which made for a perfect backdrop to our bride/groom table but also for our guests to take memorable pictures. My favorite part of the day was our first look. I knew it would be good because Scotty is an emotional guy. It was such a sweet moment between both of us. Both crying and smiling while we saw each other for the first time. Nothing can beat that moment.

Looking back at the whole process, planning a wedding is no joke. It definitely IS fun and exciting but the first thing I would say you have to figure out as a couple is how the wedding day is going to run. At what point will a wedding planner step in or what relative is going to tell where your vendors need to be. My next piece of advice is to remember to have a moment of just you and your husband to look at the day. Step away and take it all in. It’s one day but goes incredibly fast! Lastly, your wedding day is a day to remember. So get a photographer you trust and who is amazing at their job! (Like mine….Apryl Ann Photography) you will want photos and video to show your kids, friends and family for years to come of the day your life started together, as one.
